a hands-on adventure
Experience holistic community transformation first-hand by visiting Raise the Roof Academy in Bwasandeku, Uganda.
Every Raise the Roof Academy mission trip is designed to offer you an exclusive, educational, and hands-on experience. Based at RTRA, the team is given a unique opportunity to see a thriving school and poverty-alleviation projects in action. The team will interact with students on a daily basis providing them with a complete understanding of how the lives of marginalized young people in Uganda are being transformed, and how native leaders are steering their communities out of poverty. At RTRA, teams learn about global injustice and discover their own potential for making the world a better place.
There are also ample opportunities to explore Uganda, including the chance to experience rich cultures and customs. Take a cruise down the mighty River Nile, marvel at one of the world's most spectacular waterfalls, and be wowed by wildlife on a safari game-drive at Murchison Falls National Park.
THE Summer Mission Trip WILL BE JUNE 26 - JULY 9, 2019
